Maryland Dermatology Laser Skin and Vein Institute now offers the newest revolution in body sculpting procedures: BTL EMSculpt. The board certified dermatologists at MDLSV were pioneers in developing and perfecting this technology over the last several years and is the first practice in Maryland to offer this treatment. EMSculpt is the world’s first and only non-invasive procedure to efficiently build muscle, burn unwanted fat, and sculpt the treatment area.
Using non-invasive HIFEM (High-Intensity Focused Electro-Magnetic) technology, the EMSculpt machine induces supramaximal muscle contractions not achievable through voluntary contractions. During normal voluntary muscle contractions, the muscle fibers relax between each nervous stimulus. EMSculpt generates impulses at such a rapid frequency that it doesn’t allow such a relaxation phase. Supramaximal contractions cause an enhanced adrenaline release, which triggers an intensive lipolysis response in fat cells. When exposed to the supramaximal contractions, the muscle tissue is forced to adapt, responding with a deep remodeling of its inner structure that results in muscle building and fat burning.
EMSculpt for the Abdomen
The EMSculpt works on the Abdomen area contracting and tightening the muscles to both burn fat and sculpt the area.
EMSculpt for the Buttocks
EMSculpt works on the buttocks as well, using the same supramaximal muscle contractions as with the abdomen area. Many patients opt to try the EMSculpt in place of an invasive Brazilian butt lift.
What to Expect
The EMSculpt procedure feels like an intensive workout. You can lay down and relax during treatment. No anesthesia is needed and there is zero downtime after treatments. The treatment takes about 30 minutes to finish. It is recommended to have a series of 4 treatment sessions scheduled 2-3 days apart. You start to feel results right after the first treatment with positive results being seen two to four weeks after the last session and continue to improve for several weeks following the treatments.
